Last week some young twit tapped my rear bumper, while the wifey was driving.
Obviously, she was deemed "not at fault".
So my insurance has been realy great (a 1st
) by offering new exhaust + rear bumper (agreed to replace w/ same priced PDC bumper/mouldings), all to be done @ European Autobody.
The truth is, I've secretely been hoping for such a perfect accident, as I've been wanting to retrofit rear PDC for a while now, but the cost of the appropriate bumper was an obvious deterrent.
So I ordered the PDC kit for a G-note (US Price = $650, but no longer available).....I know it's crazy...but the car is too big...unlike my E36.
Then started thinking (that's when the trouble started).....if she's getting painted...it would be cheaper to fix my front bumper at the same time.
Continued thinking some more.....now the anal shit is taking over (black Spiderman syndrome)...forget fixing the front bumper...lets sell it and get a brand new one for $300 more.
So now, I'm spending $1400 on a front bumper w/ paint + $1500 on PDC kit (installed).
Found a buyer for my old bumper, but better list my old 540 brakes on the boards for extra cash.
Brakes sold quickly for US$250 on bimmerforums (yeah !), but while surfing ebay I found (damn !):

Was thinking (again), since installer is in the trunk workin on PDC, he might as well throw in my new BMW Sirius satelite radio receiver.
Now, I need to sell my exhaust to offset some of the excess thinkin that i've been doin !
So who wants a 95% perfect low mileage M-Tech exhaust ?
